The 2011 Oceania Canoe Slalom Championships are being held at the Mangahao Whitewater Park in New Zealand. The qualification course on Saturday had two sections of gates that challenged the paddlers and judges.
Gates 3, 4, 5 and 6 offered a choice of direct negotiation of gates or a spin within the sequence. Here are some examples from the C1M class.
Gates 9, 10, 11 and 12 provided similar challenges. Here are some examples from the K1W class.
